I really don't understand opinions like these... The truck has a rock crawl mode (great gear ratios), it can do whoops with the best of them, it has an advertised limit to water crossing, it has a tow rating just like other trucks, it even has a respectable 0-60. It is the jack of all trades. If one can increase the capability of any of these features without affecting the other, that's a win-win in my book.

Putting a snorkel on something that wasn't meant to go near water is a bad analogy.

BTW, to make record known. This 4" lift is NOT a win in my book due to axle wrap.

so...3" lift good? 4" bad? I agree that the idea of a block and the geo is all screwed but I don't know if I buy into the .5" - 1" is gonna make a heavy ass truck any more unstable. and the +3 deaver raised my rear about the same as a 4" block for height comparison.

I don't think I said 4" is bad. I think the WAY they made this truck go to 4" is problematic/bad.
